Abstract

[Over the last decade, earmarked voluntary contributions to international development organizations (referred to as multi-bi financing in this chapter) have become a significant source of donor funding. Reinsberg discusses how multi-bi financing channeled through trust funds shapes the organizational practices of multilateral agencies, using evidence from a large number of interviews conducted at the World Bank. The analysis covers seven types of possible consequences raised by a primarily policy-driven literature, including differences in the portfolio of activities of trust funds and core resources, the alignment of trust-funded activities with development needs, undue donor influence upon agency operations, insufficient recovery of maintenance costs, long-term budget implications, transaction costs and administrative burdens, and institutional fragmentation.]
